The Mediterranean Women’s Fund was created in January 2008 through the initiative of women who have been involved for many years in promoting women’s rights in the Mediterranean region.
Starting from their experiences of trying to finance their projects or those of other associations in Algeria, France, Turkey, Morocco and in Palestine, they have found that it is necessary to create a structure in order to provide financial support for the women’s rights movement in the region.
The Fund is based on the ethical principles of equality, of secularism and of respect for human beings and for the environment, as well as an engagement to promote peace.
It is also based on international legislation concerning human rights and also on a holistic vision of society supported by the women’s movement around the world.
To participate in the improvement of the condition of women and the promotion of equality between sexes throughout the countries around the Mediterranean by contributing to the development of the women’s movement in the region, at both local and regional levels.
To provide, or help to find, the financial or technical means which are needed to fund actions decided by those groups, associations, organizations or individuals who are working towards equality between women and men in the Mediterranean region.
